Thursday, February 12, 2015
My first reaction was, “The balls on these guys.” Then I read the article which says they have a “20-year contract that granted rooftop owners the right to sell tickets to games.”
Well, that’s out of the blue.
Of course, a lot of pitchers are now starting to work up in the zone.
Brad Ausmus was good after all.
A 6-foot-2, 220-pounder with a rare blend of strength and speed, he was the youngest of four brothers to star at Grant Union High.

Architect of the late 60’s Cardinals World Series teams and the Big Red Machine.
Long-time GM of the Yankees.
GM of the Royals and Braves.
Ken Rosenthal covers the impact of state taxes on offers to James Shields.

Ruben sounds like the guy in your fantasy league who everybody only deals with when they have to.
Jim Callis grades out the next big thing from Cuba.
